Conscious Consumers Can Actively Contribute To A Better World
We are a design publishing house that produces smart homeware for happy homes, establishing the link between design and the Portuguese manufacturing skills.
We are inspired by the idea that we can deliver meaningful and memorable moments to people’s daily routines with our unique and useful products. What drives us is the know-how and human touch of our manufacturers, and the Portuguese local materials.
In 2009 we invited ESAD.CR’s product design students to know more about pottery and crochet and funded workshops in these areas to one class. The designers developed product ideas based on these techniques and some designs were selected. First samples were produced in 2015.
In January 2017 the company was founded after a positive feedback from the local Portuguese market. 2019 represents the consolidation of Dedal’s internationalization. The company’s plans to further expand internationally were delayed by the health pandemic of 2020 but the company is already getting back on track preparing the upcoming catalogue.
To design and create home products that spark happiness the” heart way”, using materials and collaborative processes that protect our environment and enhance our communities
To make every home happy and our world a better place
About our names
‘dedal’ is the acronym of Developing Design and Local economies. The word means thimble in Portuguese (the cap used to protect the end of the finger when sewing).
Our product names are inspired by the Portuguese, Latin and Esperanto languages.
